Rear flash - pink danio
Although I would have liked more light on the head, I am pleased with the effect it had on the fins.My journal....Swimming in South Africa:

Beautiful picture! You're right about those fins really showing off.
You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

What a pretty fish! Thanks for posting - never heard of a danio like that.

I believe they are just genetically modified zebra danios. Change one gene and you get long fins + awesome leopard pattern. Haven't seen them in colors before though, so maybe it is a new species?
Love these fish.20 gallon with a male betta, neons, glowlights, and red cherry shrimp. (work in progess) Recently added a few LIVE plants and driftwood, Woooohoooo!

Since they are the same species as zebra danios they can cross breed with the genetically modified glo-fish variants.
This may be that, or it may just be that the lighting selected is highlighting the pink/gold undertones that are in the native color variations.

As far as I am aware it is a leopard crossed with a glofish.My journal....Swimming in South Africa:
